    Hello all,

    I recently reinstalled CentOS 4.4 on a server and /scripts/upcp had some issues installing/updating XML::Simple. I am posting this to help people solve this issue if they run into it.

    It was dying with the error:

    --- cut here ---
    Removing previously used /home/.cpan/build/XML-Simple-2.16 Going to build G/GR/GRANTM/XML-Simple-2.16.tar.gz

    Checking installed modules ...
    could not find ParserDetails.ini in /usr/lib/perl5/site_perl/5.8.7/XML/SAX
    Can't locate object method "new" via package "XML::SAX::PurePerl" at /usr/lib/perl5/site_perl/5.8.7/XML/SAX/ line 43.
    CPAN: YAML loaded ok
    make: *** No targets specified and no makefile found. Stop.
    /usr/bin/make -- NOT OK
    Running make install
    make had returned bad status, install seems impossible
    --- cut here ---

    Here is what I did to fix the install:

    1. I had a ParserDetails.ini in another location so I copied it to the new location:
    #cp /usr/lib/perl5/vendor_perl/5.8.5/XML/SAX/ParserDetails.ini

    2. Installed XML::LibXML::SAX (This installed a couple other perl modules) using CPAN
    # perl -MCPAN -e 'install XML::LibXML::SAX'

    3. Installed XML::Simple
    # perl -MCPAN -e 'install XML::Simple'

    That should fix the errors in /scripts/upcp.
